This version of Blade adds Intelli-Carve® support for the recovery of Portable Network Graphics (PNG) image files. It also fixes an issue where Blade® would not run if the licence was purchased over 12 months prior to the release date.

For a full list of the changes made in this version, please see  Change Log v1.13.

Portable Network Graphic (PNG)

Portable Network Graphic or PNG as it is more commonly referred to, is a file format for storing bitmapped (raster) images. The format supports lossless data compression and was created as an improved, non-patented replacement for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF). It is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet.

 In Blade® v1.13, we have developed an Intelli-Carve® Data Recovery Engine which understands the PNG file format; the software can verify the integrity of the data structures during the recovery process. It can also identify partial recovery scenarios and can recover those file fragments to a separate folder for examination.
